Oil Dedicated to St Maurus 3 (Patron Invoked against Hoarseness)
St Maurus 3 (Patron Invoked against Hoarseness) from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.
Saint Maurus is a well-known figure in the history of the Christian church. He the first disciple of Saint Benedict of Nursia and venerated as a saint in the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Anglican Churches. His feast day traditionally celebrated on January 15.
There many miracles and stories associated with Saint Maurus throughout the centuries, and he has invoked for a number of different patronages. It’s possible that the specific patronage of Saint Maurus as invoked against hoarseness has developed as part of local traditions or based on personal devotion, but such specific invocations can often vary from place to place and between different faith communities. This specific patronage might rooted in a particular story or miracle associated with Saint Maurus.
However, as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, Saint Maurus not officially recognized as the patron saint against hoarseness by the Catholic Church. Patron saints typically chosen based on some aspect of their life or death that reflects the area they considered the patron of, and while Saint Maurus renowned for his obedience and miracles, his known hagiography does not include any specific mention of a connection to ailments related to the throat or voice.
But in the lived experience of faith many people find personal patrons in the saints based on their own needs, experiences, and connections so Saint Maurus could still personally invoked against hoarseness by individuals even if it’s not an officially recognized patronage.
